    The game does not have a lot of events that relate to crime, dissent, or social movements. In reality, such events are extremely important on the development of humanity and should be included in the game as it purports to recreate human history. I have developed these ideas over the last few decades playing Civ. As with my previous proposed Events, many are based on actual events in the real world. Some of them I was able to test/use in Civ by using manual techniques and World Builder. So, I suggest the following list of additional events.

    A group of bandits led by a former crusader named Robin Hood has formed in the forests near [City] the local nobles are upset because he robs from the rich to help the poor. The nobles demand action.
    1) Leave the matter to the local Sheriff. Robberies increase. Lose five Gold for five turns
    2) Offer a reward for information leading to Robin Hood’s capture. Several people claim the reward but none of the tips are fruitful. Pay 100x Gold.
    3) Dispatch the local garrison to track him down. Robin Hood is not captured but his raids are significantly reduced. Pay 140x gold in costs.

    2) Task the local authorities to stop them. The Factory in City is destroyed, but the group fades away. Pay 40x Gold in costs
    3) Mount a large PR campaign in support of industrialism and prosecute the Luddites as criminals. No Factories are lost. Pay 100x Gold in costs.
    (MUST have Factory in [City] and at least four more Factories in other cities).

    An environmental group called ELF has arisen in [City], protesting pollution and the destruction of the environment. They have been sabotaging pollution causing industries across [Country]. Industrialists are demanding they be stopped.
    1) Publicly brand them as a bunch of tree-hugging dope-smoking misfits who do not understand what is important. Lose one power plant, refinery, or chemical factory to sabotage. (Event may repeat if this option is selected)
    2) Order a criminal investigation into ELF. No one is caught but the acts of sabotage are reduced. Pay 200x Gold in costs. (Event may repeat if pollution increases)
